I'm sure we all have a different opinion about every show we went to, or listened to via tapes or this archive.

I attended all 5 from this run. This show is as good as the dick's pick from the first night. From beginnning to end this show was amazing! Maybe you had to be there, maybe not.

This recording is fine to listen to and many thanks that it is still here, as many have been yanked from this site.

Sugaree, Row Jimmy, High Time, Music Never Stopped.....unbelievable first set song selection and performances.

The post drums was amazing, they turned all the lights on in the place from uncle johns through good lovin', we all danced like banshees.

The Kaiser rocked for this run of shows, with the first three nights being just stellar.

Definitely a Keeper for your stash of shows. Download for sure.

Honestly this is riddled with slop and off-playing. Definitely some great moments and a strong finish, but here we go again with people jumping onboard and dubbing this as a classic and others, not wanting to be left out, doing the same.

Those that think Cornell 77 is the greatest will say the same about this. The rest who think there are just so many other better shows will shake their heads.

Certainly enjoyable, but so many other better shows.

Subject: "One More Saturday Morning" ...!
It being a Friday night and after midnight after "Casey Jones". (This isn't important but, when I was looking at them through my binoculars during "Casey Jones", I could see superimposed upon the band as if it were on T.v., the sign "Grateful Dead" which they brought out during that tune above them, the same one in "the movie"! But when I took down my binoculars it was normal i.e. not superimposed over the band but over head)! Honest to God, a very wierd mushroom halucination that I could see interchangably only through my binoculars!
I'm sure glad Steve Rolfe and Ron Elner got the 2nd encore, because it was a roaring version, up to par with the entire rest of this absolutely amazing concert! One of the best I ever saw, out of the ~211 times I saw Grateful Dead.

Subject: This show rips
I can't totally get on board with the sound...though it is a highly listenable aud, and I did dl the show. This is mainly due, however, to how ripping the performance truly was...TMNS is intense, high time is gorgeous and terrapin through good lovin' is really good. Playin' and UJB are really off the chain...classic stuff. So good!

Subject: Nice Aud
This is a very nice Aud. The sound is crisp and clean with a good mix of band and crowd. Strong set lists in my opinion. High lights for me are Row Jimmy and MNS in first set and Terrapin thru Bertha in second set. Well worth a DL.
